Sebastian Vettel concedes the British weather will play a massive role in outcome of this weekend's British GP after the rain curtailed running on Friday.
With the rain coming down as they took to the track in Friday's first practice session only eight drivers opted to cover 10 or more laps.
However, there was even less running later in the day as the conditions deterioted resulting in only two drivers setting a lap time in the first 45 minutes of Practice Two. And even when they did head out, again only eight drivers covered more than 10 laps.
Vettel was one of the few who did in both sessions, amassing 11 in the first and 10 in the second where he finished down in 13th place after opting to run on the intermediate tyres and save a set of full wets for later in the weekend.
"I think we saved the tyres by not running," said Vettel. "This afternoon there was too much water. It's pretty tricky in these conditions.
"I think it's more of a shame for the fans sitting in the grandstands waiting for the cars to come out, and we didn't come.
"A little bit at the end, but basically a little bit of a waste, because you can't really try anything.
"We'll see what happens tomorrow.
"I think the weather will be the most important thing in determining the rest of the weekend, so hopefully we'll get some running tomorrow morning and then get ready for qualifying."
